[Wikimedia-l] [Wikimedia Announcements] Education Program update: Rod Dunican is leaving the Foundation

2014-06-27 Thread Anasuya Sengupta
Dear friends and colleagues,

Rod Dunican (currently the Director, Wikipedia Education Program at WMF)
has announced that he is leaving the Foundation at the end of this month.
We are truly sorry to see him go; he has been such a critical part of the
Wikipedia Education Program and strategy for many years including his
leadership of the team. We wish you the very best, Rod, and look forward to
hearing of your new adventures.

I am looking forward to working even more closely with the current
Education team: Anna Koval, Floor Koudijs and Tighe Flanagan. All three of
them have complementing skills and backgrounds, and have begun working
closely and effectively with each other and with the rest of the
Grantmaking team. With Rod, they have been working on an exciting shift in
strategy as they have moved from a more hands-on programmatic strategy to
becoming a facilitative hub in which the team supports different kinds of
local education programs. This has meant that the team has been working
with educational program leaders, volunteers and community organisers in
over 60 countries to map their education-related activities, successes and
challenges. The integration of the Wikipedia Education Program team into
the GLEE team also means valuable opportunities for the different grants
programs to work more closely to understand successful education programs
and to support them through grants and other resources. In particular, the
Education team’s focus on gender and geographic diversity as a strategy is
very much shared across the broader Grantmaking department.

As the team goes forward to develop a road map for the future with our
community members, Floor Koudijs will be the interim Senior Manager for the
Education Program. Initially the team has been assigned different parts of
the world in order to create a baseline of educational programs and
activities, with Floor responsible for Latin America and Western Europe,
Tighe for the Arab region and Africa, and Anna for Asia and Eastern Europe.
Please look at the Education portal for more details.[1]

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me, or to Floor, Tighe and Anna, for
any comments or clarifications.[2] We look forward to working in
partnership with our communities worldwide as we support education programs
in service to the Wikimedia mission.

Warmly,

Anasuya

Thanks for the update, Anasuya.

As you have probably heard, I'm currently working on an article for the
Signpost about the education program, and I might have a few questions for
you off-list sometime in the next several days or next week.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] [Wikimedia Announcements] Education Program update: Rod Dunican is leaving the Foundation

2014-06-27 Thread LiAnna Davis
As someone who worked with Rod for the last four years on the Wikipedia
Education Program, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank him for all
the strategic work, problem solving, training development, and budget
wrangling he’s done behind the scenes that have made the Wikipedia
Education Program what it is today. Much of this work isn’t visible to
people outside the education team, but it needs to be done, and Rod’s hard
work in these areas has affected all aspects of the Wikipedia Education
Program.

I’ve had the privilege of working with Floor, Tighe, and Anna over the last
several months, and I know Rod leaves a great team in place who will carry
on our mission of getting contributing to Wikimedia projects into
educational settings worldwide.

Rod, thanks for all your hard work over the last four years!
